Teachers Love Summer

I am linking up with Aimee from Primarily Speaking to share reasons why I love summer.  Although I love my job and always give it my all, I appreciate having some time to slow down and relax.
This is a given.  I actually get to wake up at a decent hour during the school year since my drive to school is short.  However, it is nice knowing I can stay up late without being tired the next day.  I like being well rested.
I am passionate about professional development and having a growth mindset.  I love that I can sit outside on my deck and read whenever I desire.  

               I am heading to the beach in July.  What suggestions do you have for fun books?
In my free time, I absolutely love to travel.  Every year I go to:
-Phoenix, AZ
-Hilton Head Island, SC
-Fort Lauderdale, FL

This summer I have been frequently traveling to Cincinnati and Dayton to see my college roommates and sorority sisters.  The rest of my college friends live in Chicago so I fly out once or twice a year….  Just not during the winter :)  I also am going to Raleigh, NC in July for EdCamp Leader.  I am really looking forward to meet more educators.
I love being able to have a consistent work out schedule in the summer and not feel rushed.  Plus working out is so much nicer when there is sunshine.
Instead of DVRing my favorite tv shows, I can watch them when they air.  It's the little things, right?
I am an active person so I don't watch a ton of TV, but if I want to relax and watch FRIENDS I am able to.

What do you love about summer?  Although teachers always seem to be on the go, it is important to take the time to relax.

  1. Hi, Allie! You are so right, it is the little things! Waking up without an alarm clock, relaxing outdoors, working out at a desirable pace, and traveling are all such wonderful things to appreciate about summer. It sounds like you have a great summer all lined up. Thanks for linking up!
